Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate Ministerial Meeting

The Government of India will host the second Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate Ministerial Meeting in New Delhi, India on October 15, 2007. Representatives from partner countries Australia, China, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, and the United States of America will review progress and accomplishments since the 2006 Inaugural Ministerial in Sydney, Australia, and announce upcoming cooperative activities involving deployment of clean technology in eight key areas: cleaner fossil energy, renewable energy and distributed generation, power generation and transmission, steel, aluminum, cement, coal mining, and buildings and appliances.

The head of the U.S. delegation will be James Connaughton, Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

The Asia-Pacific Partnership is a public-private partnership among six major Asia-Pacific nations to accelerate the development and deployment of cleaner, more efficient technologies to meet national pollution reduction, energy security and climate change concerns in ways that promote economic development and reduce poverty. The six partner countries represent about half of the world's economy, population and energy use, and produce about 65 percent of the world’s coal, 48 percent of the world’s steel, 37 percent of world’s aluminum, and 61 percent of the world’s cement.
